Head to these Deep Creek Golf Courses
Golfing is such a peaceful and relaxing sport, making it the ideal pastime for a leisurely vacation or friend’s getaway to Maryland. Here are the best Deep Creek golf courses within a short distance from our Inn:
- Fantasy Valley Golf Course: While this course opened in 1980, it’s seen many upgrades, rerouting, and changes over the years. Located at the base of Wisp Resort, just minutes from our Inn, you’ll find a modern course here following the natural contours of the mountain range with fantastic views. The 6,446 yards, par 70 championship course, is as challenging as it is enjoyable.
- Lodestone Golf Course: After you’ve played a round at the base of the mountain, head on up to some of the largest greens on the East Coast at Lodestone in Wisp Resort. In fact, GolfWeek Magazine consistently ranks this location as one of the best public Deep Creek golf courses in all of Maryland. There’s something extraordinary about golfing at this altitude, overlooking the verdant landscape below.
- Oakland Golf Club: Located about 15 minutes south of the lake, this is one of the Deep Creek golf courses often referred to as one of Maryland’s “best-kept secrets.” You’ll find an 18-hole championship course encompassing 6,395 yards of rolling, manicured terrain. Each year, the Oakland Golf Club is home to the annual Western Maryland Amateur Championship, bringing golfers from all over the county to compete.
- Thousand Acres Golf Course: Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of Western Maryland, this course aimed to fit seamlessly within the natural terrain—and they succeeded. You’ll find carefully constructed greens, fairways, and water features, creating a lovely place for a rousing round of golf.
If you’re still looking for more time on the links, there are a few more Deep Creek golf courses just a short drive away. Check out Canaan Valley and Alpine Lake Resort over the border in West Virginia or the Rocky Gap Casino Resort about 40 minutes east of the lake.
